-JOHN viii. 58.
Jesus said unto them, verily, verily, I say unto you, before Abraham was, I am.
I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.-REVELATION i. 8.

THE History of the Patriarchs from Adam to Moses, inclusively, in five volumes, was all I intended to give from the press. The favourable reception with which that work has been honoured, induces me to hope that it may have been useful; and encourages me to comply with a request repeatedly made, that I would publish, at least, the subjects of this volume, they having been peculiarly acceptable from the pulpit. Being an attempt to delineate the FEMALE character, from real examples, it may, perhaps, have the merit of interest with readers of that sex. And if it shall, in any degree, serve to maintain their importance, and to promote their improvement, society will have gained somewhat from the publication. I respectfully submit it, such as it is, to the public judgement.
